That's pretty much my attitude about it as well.

Revactor, the Actor library I wrote, uses a coroutine system in which the
coroutines are suspended by waiting for asynchronous messages.  The event
system (using Rev) feeds asynchronous messages to the coroutines.

It's a similar approach to how the Rubinius VM (Ruby VM based off the
Smalltalk 80 design) works, and that's also using libev underneath.
